pti may blog hop... so happy..

{if you want to see my AJVD post, please click here}
Hey friends!! I'm so happy to be popping in with a card for the current PTI blog hop.  I'm still not 100% with my shoulder so I went the easy route and used some of the die cuts that come in the PTI Mini Make It Market kit Color Pop:  Butterflies.  I took my inspiration from the overall design and pulled out some of the colors, blue, yellow and teal.  A quick wash of light yellow was brushed onto some watercolor cardstock.  Once that was dry I die cut the piece and then added my butterflies.  The die cut sentiment from Color Pop: Butterflies was die cut from a light grey cardstock twice, adhered together and then adhered over the top of the middle row of the butterflies.   The panel was then adhered to a card base made from the same light grey cardstock.  I also going to post this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.  Thank you to everyone who stopped by my blog to let me know they were thinking of me as I recover from my shoulder surgery and a special thank you to my sweet bloggy friend, Lisa.  I received one of Lisa's beautiful shaker cards in the mail shortly after my surgery and it brought a huge smile to my face and really brightened my day!  Thanks, Lisa!! You are awesome!!



Thanks for stopping by today...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS fog; Dies and die cut:  PaperTrey Ink; Ranger watercolor cardstock; Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors
